Default Re: Time For A New Coach

and here it is the complete note, thanks to Alex again

what I found hillarious is the one saying that another coach for him could be De la Peña he actually has no idea about the pass between Nico and Horacio

Los ex tenistas Guillermo Vilas y Javier Frana, y los comentaristas Tony Pena y Juan Szafrán desmenuzan el difícil momento del viñamarino. "Debe volver con Gabriel Markus", exige Vilas

La temprana eliminación de Nicolás Massú a manos de Sergio Roitman en la Ciudad Jardín alejó al viñamarino de su intento por reinsertarse en los puestos de privilegio de la ATP. Y no fue todo: también dejó un manto de dudas respecto de su nivel.

El "planeta tenis" ha estado expectante frente a la pobre realidad del campeón olímpico. Desde Buenos Aires, el legendario ex jugador argentino Guillermo Vilas ahondó en el sostenido bajón del dos criollo.

"Conozco muy bien a Nicolás y es un jugador de muy buena madera. No ha engordado, ni tiene problemas con la edad. Puede volver a ser lo que era antes. Ahora pasa por un momento difícil y es necesario que tome los recaudos necesarios para salir rápido de este hoyo. ¿Cuáles son? Creo que debe volver con Gabriel Markus", apunta el otrora ganador del US Open, el Abierto de Australia y Roland Garros.

"A veces los jugadores están confundidos. Y cuando uno está perdido en la vida, vuelve al hogar, a donde uno se formó. Y creo que, tenísticamente, para Massú ese lugar es Markus, volver a trabajar con él. Gabriel lo conoce muy bien y puede ayudarlo a escalar rápido en el ranking", añade Vilas.

Los analistas de ESPN Javier Frana, Juan Szafrán y Tony Pena también brindaron luces sobre cómo afrontar el gris panorama.

El primero de ellos -quien fue 30º del mundo en 1995- le proyecta un duro camino al chileno en su afán por retornar a los primeros lugares.

"Le va a costar volver. El circuito ahora es como una secadora de ropa que gira muy rápido. Si sales de ahí es muy difícil reinsertarse", afirmó. En todo caso, según Frana, "por su edad (28 años), Nicolás tiene un par de años de vida útil".

Szafrán, en tanto, afirma que "la garra que tiene 'Nico' es admirable. Esas medallas olímpicas no se las quitará nadie, pero queda una larga temporada para que siga en la lucha, que es donde más cómodo se siente".

El comentarista también tiene palabras para Paul Capdeville, quien ahora le pelea el dos de Chile al viñamarino.

"Tiene más tenis de lo que él mismo cree. Es cuestión de confianza. En todo caso, él no tuvo una preparación física adecuada para un deportista de élite. Tiene 24 años y se ahoga en partidos largos", sostiene.

Por su parte, Pena le recomienda un coach a Massú: Horacio de la Peña. "Una de las personas que más sabe de tenis en el mundo es 'Pato' Rodríguez, pero creo que en este momento Nicolás necesita a alguien que lo haga luchar todos los días, y De la Peña sabe cómo hacerlo".

1st time in mi life that I agree with Vilas

And I like Horacio too ... After seen him training with the chilean juniors he is just that Nico needs, sadly this will not happen

I agree with Vilas too. The stupidest thing that Nico has ever done was to fire Gaby the second time. I don't know if it was completely his decision or his dad's or Nano's, but it was bottom line dumb. Gaby was the best coach for Nico - perfect caoch for Nico. But I highly doubt that even if Nico begged Gaby to come back that Gaby would do it. He puts Gaby through hell. If I were Gaby, I would tell him to screw himself...and I adore Nico. And what Nico said about Gaby after he fired him was really unforgivable...I was ashamed for him.

As for Horacio, I like Horacio and he would also be great for Nico. I don't get their relationship. If the Chilean newspapers can be trusted, Nico did ask Horacio to coach him once before and Horacio would have said yes if Fernando hadn't said no. And when you see them together at tournaments, they seem to get along, and Stefano was sitting with Horacio one time. I've seen Horacio coaching Nico from the stands when Nico and Fernando played doubles together, and Nico was laughing at what Horacio was saying. But there are times when they are at each other throats so I just don't know if they could last long together.

Again, (and yes Kid I do believe in Santa Claus! ), I want him to get a different perspective on the game and get an American coach. Someone who can help him shorten his points and do better on hardcourts.

you still leave cookies and a glass of milk on Christmas eve right? just kidding

I know, as much as I would love to have Gaby back, he wouldn't take Nico back no matter if he goes to beg him down on his knees, I wouldn't take him back and like NF said, I adore Nico but I think Gaby wants to live some years to see his girls all grown up and beign Nico's coach doesn't help at all to his health to achieve that

I just can't see him being coached by Horacio, I just can't

The most important thing though in a coach is that it has to be someone who will care about Nico, who will take care of Nico, and who will fight for him.

Interview with Patricio Rodriguez
From www.elmercurio.cl

"Vilas está totalmente equivocado y obsoleto"
El técnico de Massú desestima las apreciaciones del ex astro argentino, quien dijo que el viñamarino debería volver a trabajar con Gabriel Markus.

A Patricio Rodríguez le molesta que se le dé tanta importancia a la derrota de Nicolás Massú en la primera ronda del ATP de Viña del Mar.

"Empezamos bien el año en Auckland, donde 'Nico' demostró que está jugando bien. Después perdió en Australia contra (James) Blake, que es durísimo en cemento. Y aquí esperábamos más, porque ha estado entrenando muy bien, pero no hay que olvidarse que (Sergio) Roitman está en su mejor momento y que ya le había ganado antes. Hay que entender que es sólo un torneo y que vienen muchos campeonatos más. Él no está jugando mal; sólo hay que mejorar un par de cositas. Para mí, lo que pasó en ese partido fue que se puso muy tenso", analiza "Pato".

-Entonces, es difícil para el DT hacer algo si su jugador muestra un buen nivel en las prácticas pero se pone muy nervioso en el partido...

"Pero nadie piensa en que el otro tipo también juega. Acá todos creen que Nicolás viene a su país y tiene que ganar el torneo, y no es así. Mire lo que pasó con Juan Ignacio Chela, que es 25º del mundo y perdió en primera ronda contra Fabio Fognini, que es 104º, y nadie dice nada. Mientras que si 'Nico' pierde se arma algo grande. Se toma esto como si fuera el único torneo, porque la gente y los diarios meten mucha presión. Viña es un torneo de los más chicos del circuito, pero todo el entorno les aporta un nerviosismo extra a los jugadores. Perdió en primera ronda y punto. Pero nadie dice que estuvo tres horas en la cancha y salió fresco, y hace unos meses sólo aguantaba un set, un set y medio".

-¿Cuánto ha mejorado desde que lo tomó, en septiembre?

"Mucho. De derecha andaba más o menos no más, y se ha afirmado. El revés ha progresado, sobre todo su slice, y el saque nos falló contra Roitman, sobre todo el segundo. Y también ha mejorado su velocidad".

-¿Le molestó lo que dijo Guillermo Vilas?

"¿Qué dijo Vilas?".

-Que Massú debía volver con Gabriel Markus...

"No creo que le haya ido mejor con Markus que conmigo, porque cuando yo lo entrenaba ganó dos medallas olímpicas. Vilas está totalmente equivocado y obsoleto, en el sentido de que no está actualizado sobre el circuito. No sabe lo que está diciendo... Si con Markus le estaba yendo pésimo. Seguramente lo defiende porque es argentino, pero yo nunca diría algo así y debería respetarme un poco porque yo también fui su entrenador. Vilas no debe saber que conmigo fue 9º y ganó dos oros en Atenas, porque Vilas está enterado sólo de él, de él y de él".

Thanks for that GonzoFan

can I say that I hate this stupid assh*le even more everyday that passes by?!?! ... the obsolet one is him not Vilas, at least Vilas still travels around the tour and plays GS and all those things, so he knows more about the actual situation of the tour than Rodriguez that was at home for more than a year :retard: ... and I knew that he'd come out with that sh*t that with him Nico won the 2 medals and reached the top ten, what the assh*le doesn't say is that for his stupid fault Nico had that big injury after the olympics and then he made him come back earlier than he should and also he doesn't say that Nico reached the top 10 for all the previous work that Gaby did with Nico and that assh*le only came to get the "glory" of what Nico did that year but people has to be stupid if they think that he was the one behind all this, all this didn't happen from one day to another, it was from a previous work that obviously he didn't do it

ok my rant is over is just that this guy irritates me

Pato is an idiot. Period. End of Story.

Nico won those golds because of his own talent and Gaby helping him get to where he was, nothing that Pato did.

And this just further shows that I'm right that Nico doesn't need to get another Chilean or Argentine coach where all they care about is fighting with one another, and proving who is better than one another. Let's get Nico out of that circus. Get an American coach Nico!!! And Nico needs to work on his hardcourt game as he gets older. And none of these guys can do that. And I don't want to hear that he won't like being away from Chile or speaking English. Screw those excuses. If he wants to win, then the cute bug can put up with it.
